The Town of New Castle and abutters to the River Road salt marsh agreed to have the River Road salt marsh site analyzed to address the following concerns and opportunities at the site. The primary objective was to recommend alternatives to promote a healthy salt marsh system that includes restoring the native habitat. This objective includes reducing invasive species, and determining mechanisms to manage mosquito populations. A secondary objective was to evaluate alternatives to improve the hydrology of the system, the flow of tidal and freshwater in and out of the salt marsh. Alternatives to address these concerns and opportunities were evaluated to determine the best and most environmentally sound recommendation.
